An abandoned warehouse is adapted according to the new conditions of a constantly changing site. The goal is to improve and strengthen social interaction in a friendly and healthy atmosphere. It encourages reconciliation and provides temporary shelter to vulnerable people.

“Breather” is a sustainable project using recycled resources. The structure provides those in need with ability to feed themselves, socialize and learn. The project aims to raise awareness by actively portray the tremendous potential of sustainability initiatives.

In fact the re use of adapting existing structures is a viable and socially responsible alternative to demolition and replacement. The ideal scenario is to replicate this project in multiple cities over the world. This would reduce the urban sprawl by providing many benefits to exposed communities.

    This project is not only cool because of its design, but because it goes beyond the practice! It is the kind of architecture that influence social conditions to make positive changes in our lives.
